I always try to keep some canned salmon in my pantry to use for a last-minute dinner or in case of an emergency.  You just never know!  Sometimes I forget about using canned salmon as an option to get more fish in my family’s diet.  As a reminder, always purchase good quality canned salmon and always check the expiration date.
